European arrivals via Suvarnabhumi Airport rose year-on-year to 2.1 million

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

The number of European visitors to Thailand is likely to grow by 20-25% in the coming high season and could compensate for falling arrivals from East Asia, said the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).

Based on the nine-month figure, arrivals from Europe via Suvarnabhumi Airport rose about 13% year-on-year to 2.1 million. Tourists from Scandinavia and Eastern Europe showed the highest growth, helping to draw total arrivals from the region to 30% of the projected 14.8 million foreign tourists this year.

Political factors and a poor Thai economy caused East Asian tourism to drop, with only 3.5 million Japanese visitors in the first nine months, compared with 3.81 million the same period of 2006.
